The Model 40 was a high-capacity heavy-duty transit bus built by Twin Coach. It had many new features for buses at the time such as entrance doors before the front tires and a rear engine. They were equipped with two Waukesha (or in the case of the [Key System], Hercules model WXO, 87 hp) gasoline engines mounted on either side of the bus.
More than 1000 Model 40's were built and many lasted in service for 20 years.
